Headquartered in North Carolina with strategic partners throughout the United States, Robocist provides comprehensive, market-based solutions to the challenges posed by the rapid evolution of mobility and robotic technologies.
Government agencies, universities, and businesses engage us to help them understand, plan for, and integrate connected vehicles, autonomous vehicles, electric vehicles, robotic systems - and the supporting infrastructure –solving problems efficiently and cost-effectively. To achieve this, Robocist conducts technology scouting, evaluates and tests technologies, performs technology demonstrations, and supports the full range of planning for emerging technologies. Additionally our team is developing technologies that address current gaps to increase vehicle safety by intelligently connecting vehicles on the road today. The national footprint of Robocist projects are paving the way for the integration of emerging technologies, saving clients and their communities money while improving safety and efficiency.
The Robocist Advantage
Technology is advancing at an unprecedented pace! This rapid evolution is transforming institutions and communities in unexpected ways. Robocist is here to help our clients understand these changes, plan accordingly and implement technology, policy, and operational strategies that capitalize on opportunities and resolve challenges.
The Robocist Impact
Members of the Robocist team have had extensive experience with emerging technologies and innovation - ranging from developing technology implementation plans to generating and implementing technology test plans, protocols, and data logging tools. Our team has worked with notable originations such as Chrysler, Nissan, DOD, DOE, NASA and the EPA – to name a few. Below are examples of recent Robocist projects.
NC DOT AV Roadmap Steering Committee: Provided technical expertise and guidance for connected and autonomous vehicles, emerging technology trends, and autonomous vehicle planning. Supported the program’s main goals to: assess the State’s current Autonomous Vehicle conditions (testing and operations); benchmark national and international initiatives; and provide near-term actions for NCDOT and key State agencies.
Autonomous Vehicle Evaluation: Robocist developed the ‘Autonomous Vehicle Evaluation Plan’ for the US Army, Tank Automotive Research Development and Engineering Center's (TARDEC) Autonomous Robotics for Installation and Base Operations (ARIBO) program. The developed methodology provided a standardized way to evaluate and compare ground robotics / autonomous vehicle systems.
Driverless Shuttle at Fort Bragg: The Autonomous Warrior Transport On-base (AWTO) a surrogate ARIBO project, addresses real-world needs of the Wounded Transition Battalion at Fort Bragg, NC. An unmanned transport system developed by Robotic Research is being demonstrated for applications including the on-post transport of soldiers and caretakers. Robocist developed the site-specific Evaluation Plan and supported its implementation.
RoboLogger: An intelligent devise and Software as a Service (SaaS) that independently captures and quantifies vehicle performance. Understanding the world around it, RoboLogger provides a standardized platform to evaluate autonomous technologies without dependence on manufacture or location. It is a low-cost and effective method to evaluate and compare the real-world operational performance of autonomous systems
RoboCopilot Platform Development: An aftermarket safety device (ASD), supporting intelligent transportation system and Software as a Service (SaaS) that works on any car or truck. As an Internet-Of-Things (IoT) device utilizing automotive DSRC protocols, it makes any vehicle a ‘connected vehicle’ - providing enhanced situational awareness to drivers with the goal of significantly reducing accidents. It is like an ‘air-traffic-control-tower’ for cars instead of planes.
Electric Transportation Technology Scouting: Robocist provided technical insights into program development and identified electric vehicle infrastructure technologies / systems to meet the needs and goals of demonstration projects at DOD installations.
Autonomous Vehicle Scouting, Scoping and Feasibility: Robocist partnered with the Center for Sustainable Solutions to develop an 'Autonomous Vehicle Scoping Report' for Joint Base Lewis-McChord. The report assessed their needs and opportunities, and conducted automated technology scouting, feasibility, business-case analysis and program development.
